Thursday, September 2nd @ 7:00pm
Join us on Thursday, September 2nd at 7:00pm for this Sentimental Journey through the music of Doris Day!
Doris Day passed away in 2019 at the age of 97.
To celebrate her amazing life, Chicago cabaret favorite, Laura Freeman will host a celebration of her music. A regular performer at such Chicago sights as; The Auditorium Theatre, The Park West, Davenports Piano Bar, Freedom Hall and the Chicago Cultural Center, Miss Freeman…”becomes the character reflected in the song. It shines in her face, in her voice, and above all, in her heart.” (Carla Gordon, Cabaret Scenes).Who better to highlight this singer’s journey? Having recorded over 600 songs, Day is known for such hits as Sentimental Journey, Secret Loveand Everybody Loves a Lover. Doris was not just a pretty voice and a pratfall. She represents the spirit of us all, at various times in history. She was the voice of the returning service men from World War II. She was the voice of the early women’s lib movement, representing single career woman everywhere. She was also the voice of a grieving gay community, at the height of the AIDS crisis. Her rendition of My Buddy, sung for her friend Rock Hudson, was used to say goodbye to sons, brothers and lovers in the early 80’s.
This event will take place on the 5th floor of the DANK Haus and is generously sponsored by John Bareither. There is no cost to attend, however all donations are greatly appreciated.
